We read the reviews and thought YES. But regrettably NON. Perhaps this establishment will gather its own cult following in trendy Bali, but we shall not be among the faithful. A narrow menu of three mains, all of which we sampled. The chicken was a poor best, the fish was disappointing, the fish soup was dishwater, and the bill was exorbitant. The owner clearly has an elevated view of French cuisine; in a region where great cuisines can be found in many places from Hanoi to Melbourne. My daughter is fluent in French and has lived there: her disappointment was palpable. To the owner I can only say: try harder sir, you are letting your country down.

We couldn't fault anything about this retsaurant. The food is typically French and cooked to perfection. Everything is fresh and not a limp leaf in sight in the beautiful salads. We were the only patrons on the day after Xmas. We couldn't understand this after later seeing Massimo's full. The location isn't perfect but really, from anywhere in Sanur it's no more than $2 for a taxi ride there. Being number 4 of all the restaurants in Sanur, the owner must be scratching his head. Our advice is to make the effort to patronize this beautiful restaurant because if there are no bums on seats it will vanish. By the way, for what you get the prices are incredibly cheap.

Small elegant restaurant with a small menu that comes on a board . Choice of 3starters and 3 mains... We went there twice in our short stay in Sanur all courses excellent though only criticism would be lack of choice of dessert unless u love crepe Suzette ... Staff all very helpful and attentive particularly Sonia who was lovely ....

After eating 14 days of Indonesia food, it was a god send to find the Au Bon Marche .
The staff are as friendly and cater for your every need.

For this Kiwi, I am due back in Bali for nearly 60 days next June 2013 and guess where I will be spending my dining time.

Beautifully designed restaurant with an open-plan kitchen and a great atmosphere. The hosts Sonia and Didier could not be more welcoming and their personal touch makes an evening here a treat. The menu changes daily, reflecting what is available, fresh and of high quality on the day, which makes dining here all the more fun. I must admit I was a bit disappointed by the wine list (only local Bali wine which is ok - but only ok) and my Boeuf Bourguignon was very tasty but the boeuf was a bit on the chewy side. Notwithstanding that, this place is well worth a visit
